Cajun expression meaning let the good times roll. And roll they did. The Slacks had the pleasure of playing not one, but two Mardi Gras parties. Fri. night 2/1 @ Ryles and Sat. night 2/2 @ Ralph's in Worcester. (The first appearance there for the Slacks). I especially enjoyed Ralph's. It was good to see some old friends, some I haven't seen in years. And coudos to the opening band Uncle Billy's Smokehouse. Check out the pics on our website. (a picture is worth a thousand words); the bands smoked, the burlesque dancers were amazing, and the crowd was awesome! The staff @ Ralph's was REALLY tremendous, they really appreciate the music there and moreover, THEY TAKE CARE OF THEIR BANDS!!! This was one of the best parties we have played. Being from N.O., Saturday's show was next best thing to being there. For me, I can't wait to return to Ralph's.
LAISSEZ BON TEMP ROULE! Let the good times roll.

Soul Mountain, NH

What a rush to play for you skiers at Cannon Mountain on a frosty Saturday afternoon where you showed your boogie shoes fit as well as those ski boots! The Sam Adams beer trivia questions and the fabulous staff at Cannon Mountain added to the fun. We were thrilled to see so many of our Granite State friends from our show last year along with the skiing soul crowd from Boston-Cambridge. After a quick pack up and short drive, we set up at the Cannon Mountain View Restaurant an Inn for a get-down evening of hot soul in the cold north woods. You guys really made it a fun time for us and we look forward to this mini road trip again soon!
